CARIBBEAN LOVE NOW ANNOUNCES STELLAR LINEUP FOR JAMATHON BENEFIT FOR HURRICANE RELIEF

Caribbean Love Now, the campaign launched by investor Joe Bogdanovich to mobilize support for relief and recovery for the islands affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, has announced a star-studded lineup for JAMATHON, a benefit concert set to take place Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at The Red Stripe Oval in Kingston, Jamaica.

The performers confirmed are: Assassin, Beenie Man, Blvk H3ro, Bunny Wailer, Carlene Davis, Chino McGregor, Christopher Martin, D-Major, Devin Di Dakta, Etana, Freddie McGregor, Harry Toddler, Iba Mahr, Jah Cure, Jesse Royal, Naomi Cowan, Nesbeth, Raging Fyah, Richie Spice, Romain Virgo, Sizzla, Stephen McGregor, Third World, Tommy Lee Sparta and Vegas. All-Star Reggae Band led by Dean Fraser will back all performances. Tommy Cowan will host the show. Additions to the lineup will be announced as soon as more artists join the campaign.

“I’ve always felt our response to the havoc created by the hurricanes was going to be a defining moment for the Caribbean. I now also see it as a defining moment for Jamaican music as every artist we’ve reached out to for this benefit concert has said “Yes!”, and we’re not done calling yet,” said Mr Bogdanovich.

Informed by news reports that the devastation by the hurricanes was catastrophic, Mr. Bogdanovich accompanied by Tarrus Riley, Executive Vice Chairman of Argyle Industries Marcus Richards and Jamaican Ministry of Tourism Special Advisor Delano Seiveright recently visited Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, and Dominica for a first-hand needs assessment. After meeting with the Prime Minister of Antigua, Hon Gaston Browne and government and disaster relief experts in both islands, Mr. Bogdanovich says that he is now even more resolute to raise awareness of the need to support the recovery efforts in the islands. “Imagine losing everything you own, with no place to shelter your family. It was heart-breaking beyond words, but the spirit of the people remains resolute, and we will honour that spirit at this benefit concert,” said Mr Bogdanovich.

Caribbean Love Now JAMATHON is presented with the initial support of Jamaica Tourist Board; RJR Communications Group; Downsound Entertainment; Red Stripe; Flow; Hardware & Lumber; H&L Rapid True Value; H&L Agro; Usain Bolt’s Tracks & Records; Franjam KLE; Parkland Industrial Co.; R Hotel; and Argyle Industries.
